In case of WLAN problems see here:
See the attachments on right side of bugs.launchpad.net or directly the newest rtl8192se_linux_2.6.0017.0705.2010.tar.gz.
For *.deb users it's also possible to try Personal Package Archive at launchpad from Matt Price. *.rpm user have a look here (→ about dkms)
In case of the Sound problems with Ubuntu 10.04:
Upgrading the version of alsa to version 1.0.23 solves the problem and sound works fine via speaker and microphone. Here is a link with detailed explanation on the process http://monespaceperso.org/blog-en/2010/05/02/upgrade-alsa-1-0-23-on-ubuntu-lucid-lynx-10-04/
This Laptop works fine with Linux. You can also use software with higher requirements. The newest Ubuntu kernel detect the WLAN-driver automatically. Other Linux it is possible to install the driver module manually from: You cant change display brightness, it's always on 100%.
The An-keys (A1, A2, A3, A4) are not working. If you turn your WLAN off (by fn+F1) you can't turn it on until restart. There are no feedback LED for Caps-Lock, Num, Roll. There are no mainboard based hard-keys to turn WLAN/Bluetooth on or off. The build-in-speakers are not working.
